Recently there have been rumors that Huawei is planning on making a bigger push in the US market by partnering up with local carriers. While Huawei’s phones could already be bought in the US, being an official partner with a US carrier would certainly boost its reach, especially with carrier plans allowing customers to purchase phones via installment plans.
The good news is that if you’ve always liked Huawei’s products and wanted a more official way to purchase them, a report from ABC News has confirmed that the company will indeed be launching with US carriers in 2018. Details were not revealed, but this was confirmed by Huawei’s President of Consumer Business, Richard Yu, who said that more details were expected to be revealed at CES 2018 next year.
Yu was quoted as saying in an interview, “We will sell our flagship phone, our product, in the U.S. market through carriers next year. I think that we can bring value to the carriers and to consumers. Better product, better innovation, better user experience.” He also dismissed concerns about Huawei being viewed negatively by the US government with regards to security, saying, “In consumer sales, when people really start using Huawei products, they will change their minds.”
He also confirmed that the Mate 10 would be the phone they would kicking things off with, but did not mention anything regarding pricing yet.
